These options are equally appropriate when worn with a tailored suit as they are paired with shorts and a T-shirt, giving you plenty of versatility to go with reliable timekeeping. We've ranked them here by their movement quality, accuracy, durability, and style. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Bulova's lineup is one of the few in the sector to offer highly functional timepieces in both automatic and quartz formats, as they often employ quartz crystals that vibrate at a higher frequency than much of the competition, as well as outsourced movements by reliable companies like Miyota. The result is a wide variety of options for all occasions, from thin, elegant dress pieces to rugged dive watches.
Evaluating the models on our last list, we removed one for availability issues, and another two for style problems. Frankly, the Harley Davidson model looked more like something that would come out of a Happy Meal than it did a fine watch, and the 98D111 is a good reminder of why rectangular watches get an undeserved bad name. Their replacements are rather admirable, however, and include the Archive Series Devil Diver Oceanographer, a beast of a diver that should challenge anything Sekio has to offer in its popular Prospex lineup. And given the style cues Bulova seems to take from Hublot, we included one of their more recent pieces in that vein, the Curv 44mm Chronograph. This is a rare model in that it intentionally exposes its quartz movement, which is something that's very dear to my heart. I'm not a watch purist, so while I adore a finely crafted automatic movement, I also deeply admire the advancement (and it is an undeniable advancement in accuracy over mechanical) that is the quartz movement. Being able to see its guts is a nice treat.
